    Keep losing network connectivity

    Hi,

    For some odd reason l cannot connect to Router as keeps losing connection. I connect for a few secs then it loses connection. I can use my IPAD fine to connect to router.

    I have tried to use use both wireless dongle and cable to connect to ADSL router but no luck with both.

    I have check for spyware etc but nothing found.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I get a cross on my network connectivity icon in network connections with control panel.

    Justin,

    When you are connected via ethernet cable do you still just get momentary connections?
    What version of Windows?
    Is the system up-to-date with patches?
    Are you network device drivers up-to-date?

    Have you tried turning the router off, leaving it off for 30 seconds, turning it back on, and try again?

    If the device is supplied by your ISP, have you contacted their support?

    Sounds like a hardware problem either a bad modem or a bad cable from the wall outlet to the router. I would definitely contact your ISP first as Joe suggested.
